    Lot of similarities between Duvall's swing and Frazier's. Excellent mechanics, they use the body well to power the swing. Easy power.

    I think Schebler's power swing has improved over this season. He really can put a charge into it. Swing is getting more like Duvall's, just from the left side.

    Reds seem to have a good hitting coach. Has helped Peraza too.

    I like Welsh but NO this uniform thing is not catching on. It's like when they did a forward the clock uniform day where teams wore uniforms of the future. Back in the early 2000s. This is nice little novelty to appease I don't know who but keep pandering for an audience that does not want to watch the sport to begin with. Makes sense.

    The team Matheny described several times this weekend as the team he thinks the Cardinals could be, is actually the team the Reds have become.

    Dave Parker absolutely belongs in the Hall. I think he's been denied due to the cocaine thing.

    Best memory of him is a game I attended at Riverfront when he threw out a runner trying to score, then led off the bottom half of the inning with a home run.

    Stephenson in a little jam at 100 pitches.

    I'd give him ten more pitches and call it a night.

    Two coaches. I get the impression that Votto is teaming with Long to help a lot of the hitters.

    Great all around player. Agree, should be in the Hall.

    Definitely.

    Yeah, the announcers just kinda left that hanging without speculation on why they were there.

    11 Ks and 11 base runners in 5.2. He's made improvements but he's still got a ways to go
